Frequently Asked Questions...
- Why does it cost $5?
- Is it guaranteed?
Yes, 100%. I will find you someone who I think will be a good pen pal based on your responses to the questionnaire. I will also check in with you after a month or two to see how it's going. If they didn't respond or you haven't been able to get in touch, I will find you someone else! I am always here to help you on your journey, answer any questions, and resolve any concerns.
- I haven't received my email yet with the questionnaire form. How do I know my order went through?
- Can I have more than one pen pal?
Yes! In fact, sometimes I have such a hard time deciding between matching two people up because there is a third candidate that also fits in quite nicely. If you want a couple pen pals, just say so in the questionnaire!
- I'm worried about sharing my information. Who will get my mailing address and where will it be shared?
I am the only one who will see your physical address until I have found you a pen pal. At that point, I will put your address onto their account. They will have to log in at amstationery.com using their email and password before they are able to see your address. I will never send your personal information in an email or on a public forum. You can revoke your permission to share your information at any time by writing me an email expressing your concerns.

Behind the Scenes...
This is what happens after you've paid for the pen pal entry and filled out the questionnaire. I head to my office and get to work finding you a correspondent!
More Frequently Asked Questions...
- I'm afraid I won't write back quick enough. What if I'm not a good pen pal?
- Is it real, handwritten letters or is it for an email pen pal?
No, this is the real deal! Once you are matched up with someone from another corner of the world, I will help you exchange addresses and write each other longhand letters.
